Toccoa Falls

Western Carolina set several records in Tuesday's game against Toccoa Falls. Setting records is usually good, especially if the records are set against comparable opponents. I'm just not so sure the new records set against a totally over matched opponent, is a proud achievement.

The Toccoa Falls Eagles are not members of the NCAA, or even members of NAIA. The Eagles are in Division II of the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA), a Christian college athletic association. I'm sure that a 141-39 victory, as such, is something that may label the Catamounts as bullies, as if they ran up the score on an otherwise helpless opponent. If anything, this should serve as the catalyst to remove any non-DI schools from future regular season scheduling.
